Keto/Paleo Peppermint Brownies

These are the ultimate Paleo and Keto compliant peppermint brownies that are out of this world delicious. They are gluten, dairy, soy and refined sugar free.

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 12 Brownies 1x



Wet ingredients:

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup Swerve Sweetener ( or other natural sweetener of choice)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (Lily’s Chocolate Chips for Keto version)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • coarse sea salt to garnish
  • crushed candy canes to garnish (optional, not Keto or Paleo)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Use a 8X8 baking pan
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl add in all the dry ingredients and mix together until everything is combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients into your wet ingredients in 1/4 cup increments. This is to make sure it blends nicely together. Fold in the chocolate chips. 
  5. Use your rubber spatula, scraping the sides of the bowl and transfer the batter evenly to your baking dish.
  6. Add to the oven and bake between 20-25 minutes. I usually bake mine at 21 minutes for a gooey texture. If you like your brownies harder, I would suggest baking for 25 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool completely before cutting and top with coarse sea salt, and melted chocolate chips. (Optional: top with peppermints if not Keto or Paleo)
